The Great Kindness Challenge

Hawthorn Elementary North is participating in The Great Kindness Challenge this week!  The 5th grade Leadership Team kicked off the week with a pep assembly!

The Great Kindness Challenge is one week dedicated to creating a culture of kindness.  The school is proud to participate in this proactive, positive bullying prevention initiative! All students received a checklist of kind deeds to complete this week to help show that kindness matters.

Did you know that children report a better sense of belonging and improved self-esteem by performing small acts of kindness for their peers and community? Additionally, experiencing and performing acts of kindness provide an increased sense of self worth, greater happiness and optimism as well as decreased feelings of helplessness.
